  • Simplicity Ki Sawari

    Ferrari Ki Sawaari rating: 7 out of 10(Divya Solgama wrote on 15 Jun 2012)

    After the end of Musical era of 60’s, Hindi Cinema slowly started to focus more on larger than life type cinema. But then there were few prominent film makers who without being in the parallel cinema, stayed in the boundaries of Popular Hindi Cinema and still made films with simplicity. These films were about the Middle class people and their happenings, with a high dosage of feel good factor. Film makers like Hrishikesh Mukherjee, Gulzar, Basu Chatterjee, etc made their own style and cinema emphasizing on these topics. Recently with the rise of Multiplex cinema we did witness some fine films on line of these film makers like Do Dooni Chaar, Khosla Ka Ghosla, etc. Producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra and his ace Writer / Director Rajkumar Hirani too made films on these lines, but with big stars and larger than life style. After three fantastic films these makers decided to make another film portraying the life of a common man with strong human values, but this time there are no stars, no larger than life setup. So will they give us another feel good film with good values or might be a bland message film full of boredom? Let’s find out.

    The film is a simple tale of dreams, moral values and dedication. Yes you might find some shades of ‘Do Dooni Chaar’, but only for the simple reason that it’s the only film from recent times, which portrays a tale of simple lower middle class family. The movie has plenty of good scenes like Sharman breaking the Traffic Signal, Sharman arranging money for bat, Boman Sharman phone talk, Boman’s story, Sharman at loan office, The whole scene at car scrap dealers garage, Boman frustration over cricket, Boman at Paresh Rawals’s office (mind blowing), The whole money payment scene followed by Sharman’s speech on T.V and the finale. On the flip side I found the movie bit dragging in between and felt that they should have told the whole tale in less than 2 hours. The whole Tatya – Pakkya track was irritating after some time, they should have kept it minimal as it was total contrast to the fine scenes featuring the entire Debu family {Sharman, Boman Irani & Ritwik Sahore}. Camera work is fine and the makers did brilliant job in capturing the realistic moments and location as per the need of the film. Special mention for dialogs by Raj Kumar Hirani, which makes it mark and touches your heart in many scenes. As said earlier the film needed bit of Editing to keep it crisp and tight.

    Music by Pritam is a huge disappointment, as films from Vidhu Vinod Chopra camp are known for its melodious music. The songs are pretty average and do not go with the flow and mood of the film. Maara Re, Ferrari Ki Sawari are bland and forgettable. Sach Ki Dagar could’ve been more emotional. Mala Zau De is the only saving grace in this film. Background Music is good.

    Debutant director Rajesh Mapuskar after assisting Raj Kumar Hirani makes his mark with a bold step. He could have easily made a film with big names and big budget as the banner supporting him has all the potential to make them. But he decided to go with the scrip and the whole casting of this film was impressive. Still he needs more grooming to handle such delicate subjects, as he goes bit hay way in between. One needs to focus on the script and its content in such films as they are the real heroes of such films. If the director loses his grip over it, he tends to fall apart. Thankfully due to presence of Vidhu Vinod Chopra and Raj Kumar Hirani, Rajesh Mapuskar sails smooth and gives a perfect landing to his film.

    Sharman Joshi started his career with small roles in films like Godmother and Lajja and made himself noticeable with mindless comedies like Style, Excuse Me, Shaadi No 1, etc. But slowly made his mark and gave us fine performances in films after films. After the super success of 3 Idiots or Golmaal, he could have done dozens of such films, but rather focused on different style of films. He succeeds again with his fine heartwarming performance in this film. I don’t think another actor can get that smile which Sharman’s character has in this film. Boman Irani is mind blowing and gives another stellar performance, you will Bow to him in the scene with Paresh Rawal. Ritwik Sahore is cute and adorable, his innocent eyes says everything. All the scenes of him with Sharman and Boman are superb. The whole father son bonding is lovable. Paresh Rawal in cameo was good. It was great to see Seema Pahwa in this movie, which was total contrast of her ‘Hum Log’ serial character. Deepak Shirke, Aakash Dabhade, Nilesh Diveka & Vijay Nikam gave a superb support. Special mention for Satyadeep Mishra for his silent support throughout the film. Last but not the least the Ferrari {Of Sachin Tendulkar}, makes you say Vroom Vroom.

    So bol meri ‘Filmi Khopdi’ is film mein kitna hai Dum ?

    Dum hai, though not like the 560 horse power, but still has good content to keep you smiling throughout the film. If you like simple films with human values this is your type of film. The movie has some fine performances, dialogs, feel good moments and a refreshing change from our usual Masala movies or highly intellectual cinema. In short the movie is full on Simplicity Ki Sawari which guarantees you a smile in return.
